Shooting leg pain, sharp buttock pain, or leg numbness can all be symptoms of a sciatic nerve entrapment at the piriformis muscle. This is known as piriformis syndrome. When the muscle is overly spastic, inflamed, injured or otherwise painful, this…
Absolutely great chiropractor. Dr. Vahldick is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled at addressing the root cause of every issue I’ve come to him with. He explains things well and really works with you to learn how to help aid in your own recovery. I’ve been to other chiropractors who just want to pop one thing or another and send you out the door. This man takes the time to do what is necessary and helpful.
I would highly recommend the Advanced Spine and Joint Center to anyone who has been in any kind of pain. I have 2 bulging disc and started with Zac after a year of pain 2 other chiropractors, therapy, injections and numerous dr. visits. I have been in the least amount of pain in over the past year in less than 6 weeks working with Dr. Zac. I feel like he really took time to research my situation to come up with the best treatment plan for me. I had opted for surgery when a very good friend told me how great he was helping her lower back pain. I have gone from taking 2 tramadol every for hours to 2 or less a day. Dr. Zac and his staff are always friendly upbeat and amazing.
I've been traveling for a few weeks on the road and my sciatica has been acting up. I really enjoyed Dr. Zach. I am impressed that he also is a Physical Therapist and TPI. He spent time assessing my problem and discussed them with me. He adjusted me, and gave me some exercises to help strengthen and relieve my issues. I am going back a second time before leaving to go back home. Thank you Dr. Zach.
At my first appointment, the doctor was right on time and spent time working on my knots, adjusting me, and actually seeming to care. The time spent with me was about 25 minutes. My second appointment was a complete waste of time. The doctor was over 30 minutes late, and this was a pretty early appointment (9:15 am). Then, when he did finally take me back, without any kind of apology from him or his staff, he never worked on my knots, never stretched me out, and only adjusted me in one position. The time spent with me was 5 minutes. I will not be recommending this office to anyone, but in fact will be doing quite the opposite.
My back went out over the weekend, to the point that I could not get out of bed without help. Dr. Zach got me in on Monday and had me back on my feet at work on Tuesday. I am an appliance repair technician and was completely pain-free the day after an appointment with him. If you need help, this is the man to see.
Dr. Zach doesn’t just do a “quick fix” he gets down on the mat with you to show you exercises you can do yourself to help strengthen your body and help it heal. He will make sure you are doing the exercises correctly for optimum rehabilitation. Seeing him has also made me realize that in order to heal, I really need a professional by my side to ensure that I not only complete exercises correctly, but that I am also doing the best exercises for what is going on in my body at any given time. I can tell him what is going on that day and based on his observations and my report, he will recommend how to proceed with treatment. Also, I can get adjusted right there on the spot and set up acupuncture if needed. I have had chronic back pain for over 20 years and have tried many courses of treatment. Chiropractic care, acupuncture, an anti-inflammatory diet and other supplements have all been helpful but it all comes down to strengthening my weak and injured back. After just a few days of consistently completing the exercises that he recommended, I felt some relief. I actually have hope that I will be able to do activities pain free that I haven’t been able to do without really being in pain or “paying for it” when my back is out for several days after some activities. I have never had such quick results with anything else I have tried - and it have tried a lot.
Dr Zach and Becky are amazing in every way! I was skeptical of acupuncture but I am a firm believer in Dr Zach. When I walk in hurting so bad. Dr Zach knows the body so well and I leave his office with mobility, rejuvenation of my muscles, and no pain. Highly recommend!
Dr. Zach has consistently provided me with some of the best medical services I’ve experienced! His staff is always friendly, he is extremely knowledgeable, and I feel like I can trust him completely. I woke up one morning a few years ago almost unable to walk due to lower back pain. I had, previously, been wary of chiropractors or PT but I was desperate so I gave him a call... He got me in within two hours and I walked out of the office in much less pain! I feel he genuinely desires healing for you and he has always thought me how to speed up the healing on my own and how to protect myself from further injury. I’m so grateful for his expertise and you will be too! Go see Dr. Zach!!
I went to the office in tears with severe back pain. Dr Zach immediately made me feel comfortable to get some relief. He took his time working with me each appointment to do exercises to strengthen my back to help prevent this from happening again. I’ve never gone to a chiropractor before that took the time and effort to work a plan with you like Dr Zach. I’d totally recommend this office!!
Multiple times I have been injured and Dr. Zach knows exactly what the body needs to do in order for you to heal the quickest. You may not need the surgery or pay other medical bills! Call Zach 1st! Great Doctor and business owner. 100% recommend.
Referred by the VA for back pain and Sciatica. Dr. Zach worked wonders. I am experiencing much less pain and my sciatica is far less painful. His treatments are more effective than shots ever were. He trains you to help yourself for prolonged effect. Hope the VA keeps using him. If you are a veteran, I highly recommend requesting a referral to Dr. Zach.
Dr. Vahldick was amazing! We are here on vacation and I needed help with my back. He was able to squeeze me in. His staff even called me when they had a cancelation so I could get in earlier. The Dr. was great he really new what he was doing. He is nothing like any chiropractor I have ever been to. He showed me exercises to do at home as well. If I lived here I would absolutely be a regular patient!!
I see chiro's almost weekly. For nearly 15 yrs I have been getting a "band aid" for the symptoms. I needed some relief while on vacation and Dr. V got me right in on a holiday week. Knowing I was from out of state and that he may never see me again, he took a great interest in the "fix" not the normal crack and pay method. He had a deeper understanding of how things work with the human anatomy. After a really great adjustment he then took time to find me a PT in my area to assist with the exercises I need to do. He also emailed me video links of "how to" exercises. It was really refreshing to find someone that really does want you to be better. If you are dealing with pain or just want to be healthy, go see this guy. Awesome treatment and advice! Thank you Dr. V and staff.
I began sessions with Dr.Vahldick one month ago for strength building, balance issues, and posture improvement. I was also encouraged to continue the prescribed exercises at home. In this short amount of time, I have seen noticeable, positive results. I have been impressed with his sound knowledge base, attention to detail, and professionalism. My first encounter as a "walk in" was with Becky, his assistant. She thoroughly explained the services offered. She presented information in a manner which gave me confidence in his abilities to tailor a program specifically to meet my goals. Judith Merritt, Lieutenant, US Navy Nurse Corps, Retired
